Welcome to the 2018-19 School Age Immunization Assessment Survey.
 
Maine law (20-A M.R.S.A. 6358, Chapters 126 & 261) requires students enrolled in grades K-12 to be immunized against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles, mumps, rubella, polio and varicella (chicken pox). Additionally, beginning in 2018, Maine law requires that students enrolled in grades 7-12 be immunized against meningoccocal meningitis.
 
EVERY student must have either documented proof of vaccination, laboratory evidence of immunity or a written exemption on file (medical, religious, or philosophical) FOR EACH REQUIRED VACCINE.
 
A CHILD IS NOT LEGALLY ABLE TO ATTEND A SCHOOL IN MAINE WITHOUT A COMPLETE RECORD (either immunizations or exemptions) AND IT IS THE SCHOOL'S RESPONSIBILITY TO ENFORCE! This means by the time this survey is due, you should not be reporting missing records for any child unless they have enrolled within the past 90 days (ex. kindergarten students that were not enrolled in pre-K and any students that have transferred after September).
 
PLEASE WAIT TO SUBMIT UNTIL YOU HAVE OBTAINED ALL RECORDS. SUPERINTENDENTS WILL BE NOTIFIED IF YOUR SURVEY INDICATES ANY MISSING RECORDS AND FOLLOW UP WILL BE REQUIRED TO ENSURE COMPLETED DOCUMENTATION FOR ALL STUDENTS.
 
Survey Rules & Tips:
All information must be completed on a page before clicking on the "Prev" or "Next" tab.
Information will be lost if this is not done.
 
You are only required to report for Kindergarten, Seventh Grade & Twelfth Grade students. If you do not have any children in these grades, please enter '0'(zero) for ALL questions on the pages that DO NOT apply to your school.
 
Nurses responsible for multiple schools or school districts must enter each school site separately.
 
Pre-K is not considered Kindergarten.
 
There is a comment box included for each grade surveyed. Please include any additional information or comments you feel may be pertinent.
